Breakout star Luke Combs looks to keep his momentum with a brand new single, following up five straight No.1’s with his cans-in-the-air anthem “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”

Featuring an arena filling country-rock sound with chugging electric guitars, thundering drums and Combs’ muscular vocal rasp, the track is a hard charging, straight-down-the-middle foot stomper. It’s filled with country-to-the-core lyrics all about everyday let downs and aggravations – from snapped fishing lines and broke-down trucks to girls (and dogs) who up and ran off one day. But according to Combs, there’s always one thing he can count on.

“Long neck, ice-cold beer never broke my heart / Like diamond rings and football teams have torn this boy apart / Like a neon dream it just dawned on me, that bars and this guitar / And long neck, ice-cold beer never broke my heart,” goes the chorus.

“Beer Never Broke My Heart” is the first taste of Combs’ second major-label album — with the hit maker promising more new music is on the way soon — and it follows one of the most successful debuts in recent memory. Along with sending his This One’s for You LP to the top of Billboard’s Country Albums chart and double-Platinum status, Combs’ first five singles all shot to No.1 at country radio – including “Hurricane,” “When It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got the Best of Me” and “Beautiful Crazy” – and he’s the first artist in history to simultaneously top all five Billboard country charts for multiple weeks.

Meanwhile, he’s been named both the CMA New Artist of the Year and the ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year in the last 12 months, and is now nominated for two awards at the June 5th 2019 CMT Music Awards – Video of the Year for “She Got The Best of Me” and CMT Performance of the Year for “Beautiful Crazy” from CMT Crossroads with Leon Bridges.

Combs is currently headlining his Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour with Morgan Wallen, The Cadillac Three and Jameson Rodgers, with dates selling out left and right and shows scheduled through December 13th at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
